I enjoy reading Mary Miller’s work. I have a copy of her book, Big World, and it spent a lot of time in my jacket pocket. I could read her flash fictions while waiting for my vegan chorizo burrito from the taco truck at 50th and Division. I would pop it out on the bus, and at home, too. I haven’t read much from her in a while, but I was happy to see her piece, “Safety,” in Tin House’s new Flash Fridays feature.
It’s short, tight, and you’ll find Mary’s characteristic flawed female narrator to lead you through a no-nonsense fictive dream. Enjoy.
